American Diabetes Association answeredHow much your blood glucose changes after a meal depends on many things. Different foods have different amounts of carbohydrate and will produce different amounts of glucose. Carbohydrates come in several forms that take various amounts of time to be digested and that affect the blood glucose differently. Fat or protein can slow down digestion and the rate at which glucose levels rise. High-protein foods can raise blood glucose levels but do so more slowly than foods containing mostly carbohydrate.
